The Taranaki Cycle Challenge has become one of New Zealand's premier road cycle events with over 1100, competitive and recreational cyclists enjoying the day. This event is always held on the Auckland/Bay of Plenty Anniversary weekend and is Taranaki's longest running Around The Mountain recreational cycling ride.
What an amazing day we had in New Plymouth January 2017. Superb weather and lightning quick times were again the order of the day. "We have an amazing team who contributed to make the day a huge success - thank you everyone who helped " Thanks to all who entered".

A percentage from every entry is donated to the Taranaki Kids Sports Trust. This is a charitable fund set up by Selwyn & Gayle to help Taranaki kids realise their sporting dreams. Applications have to be endorsed by the principal of the school they attend. Over the years we have been able to help a number of children and teenagers and would like to thank you for making this possible.
